Visual Communications Industry Group, VCI-Group, hosts The Open Visual Communications Consortium, OVCC, Virtual Education Session on April 26, 2012.
The Visual Communications Industry Group, VCI-Group, will host a virtual education session led by The Open Visual Communications Consortium (OVCC) Vice President and Polycom Director John Poole. The session, entitled 'Interoperability: An OVCC / Carrier Industry Update & Status', will focus on the status of interoperability in the videoconferencing industry and is offered at no cost to VCI-Group members.
This session will focus on the importance of interoperability for worldwide adoption and deployment of visual communications products and services. The session will also explore the impact and isolation created in the business and social communities when visual solutions are not interoperable.
The Open Visual Communications Consortium, OVCC, is a non-profit organization of worldwide communications technology leaders working together to enable video collaboration across any network, vendor platform and device. OVCC membership is open to any video communications network service provider (NSP), video communications managed or hosted service provider (MSP) or video network operations center (VNOC) provider interested in bringing ubiquitous video to the marketplace.

“We are pleased to work closely with the OVCC, to deliver learning sessions like this one to our membership”, said Stephen Demmings, President of VCI-Group. “One of the goals of the VCI-Group is to keep our constituency up to date and informed about the most important and member impacting industry issues and opportunities, and our regular “Brown Bag” education sessions are one tool that helps us achieve that goal.“
“Our unique community of end-user members”, he continued, “includes equipment resellers, integrators, and manufacturers. This complete community allows us to be the single voice for the Industry, and we always strive to keep our members well informed and up to date on the status of key issues within the industry. This is but one of the many issues we address during the information and training track of our annual event to be held in Monterey, California in October of this year.”
VCI-Group focuses on facilitating educational and peer networking in the conferencing and collaboration industry. In addition to providing access to education, training, learning programs and “hot-off-the-press” news and information, VCI-Group’s driving force is to keep the membership very well informed and connected to their network of member professionals.
